Strategic Plans for Wildlife Conservation and Urban Growth Get Green Light in West Pokot

Governor Simon Kachapin convened a cabinet meeting to deliberate on the approval of two key initiatives: the West Pokot County Wildlife Conservation Policy and the West Pokot County Urban Institutional Development Strategy 2024-2025.

The Wildlife Conservation Policy aims to ensure the perpetual conservation of the county's wildlife resources, recognizing them as a vital heritage. It also focuses on enabling local communities to benefit from wildlife conservation efforts. Additionally, the policy includes the development of Nasolot Reserve to boost tourism and provides a platform for collaboration among all stakeholders in wildlife conservation.

The Urban Institutional Development Strategy outlines guidelines for addressing urban management issues within the county. This strategy is designed to unlock funding from the Second Kenya Urban Support Program (KUSP II), facilitating enhanced urban development and management.
